Don't worry too much about it. Some people swear by dosing and never doing a water change...though I would never suggest that.

I ran into an issue from dosing to get my alkalinity up. The water changes will get things back to normal. When they open back up, post a pic I'd love to see them.

Thanks, the polyps fell off, so they will have to regenerate, I think. But yes hopefully I can save it and will definitely post pics.

The rest of the tank is working out well and has been for awhile. No real outbreaks of any sort through 9 months. Ready to upgrade to a nice 30-50 gallon tank soon. Just waiting for some stability w/ the company I work for, since the hurricane things are a mess, so I can't go spending $1200 on a new set up, wife would kill me.

Ok here is a picture now, it looks like the polyps are totally gone. The bottom is still purple which I believe means its still alive? My 2 peppermint a been picking at it to know end, I actually brought them back to the LFS because they definitely don't seem reef safe to me. Amy advice or a prognosis on the coral?

They are probably smelling it's demise and are "cleaning up" like expected. As long as there's still color though, it can recover.

Yeah they were hovering like vultures. That's good to hear, hopefully I can post pics of its recovery.
